When Do I Need to Replace My Windows?
It can be frustrating when you notice that something needs replacing. When it comes to windows, unfortunately this is something you can’t ignore. They are a crucial part of your home and it’s important that you take care of them to protect your property and security. Luckily, there are usually a few signs that you can spot that let you know that your windows need to be replaced.
Most units will last somewhere between 15 and 20 years, but this depends on maintenance, the frame material used, and how exposed they are to the elements. Some obvious things to look out for include warping in uPVC windows or rotting in wooden.
Finding it difficult to open or close a window, an increase in energy bills as well as leaking are also signs that you should keep an eye out. If you do notice some of these, it’s worth discussing your options with a professional.
About uPVC Windows
When it comes to uPVC windows, these are a perfect option for many homes in Lancaster. Unplasticised Polyvinyl Chloride or uPVC is a popular material for windows and doors, offering homeowners a low maintenance alternative to timber. As well as being used for this, the material can commonly be found in guttering, fascias, soffits and sliding.
As well as needing less care than timber, it is durable and also a great choice for those with a lower budget. Any uPVC windows fitted to a building need to comply with all Building Regulations, giving you complete reassurance that your home or business will be safe and secure.
Process of Fitting a New Unit
In most cases the process of fitting new double glazing windows is simple. The first step will be for our team to establish what you need and what you are looking for. From there, we will be able to provide a clear picture of the timeframe and finished results. The very first step that needs to be completed is to measure your windows. This ensures that any new units fit correctly, avoiding any issues further down the line.
Once this has been done, the team will discuss which glazing you would like, frame material and opening type. There are lots of options available to pick from, so it is worth doing your research to find out which is the right one for your property and requirements. If you do have any questions, we’re always willing to answer them and provide advice.
As soon as you’ve decided the finished look, you can look forward to having these installed in your home. We’ll keep you updated on the process and make sure that work is carried out at a time convenient to you.
